Sweet n Sour

UPDATE: never mind, it's another happy ending compliments of the SFWMD.

Burn Baby Burn. Raping the Muck for her sweet stuff.

Swampthing, maybe the first environmentalist.

What's up with the Big Sugar Deal and our Governor Crist? Sounds like a "bait and switch" perpetrated on Florida Taxpayers at the expense of the Everglades.

Is this Charlie just being sour grapes; getting even for being passed over for VP by what's-her-name? He sure works hard for his pals at the decimated GOP.

Front Page today New York Times:

MIAMI — United States Sugar Corporation has agreed to sell 181,000 acres of farmland to the State of Florida for $1.34 billion in a slimmed-down deal intended to rescue the Everglades while letting the company stay in business.

The price is $410 million less than Gov. Charlie Crist offered for the entire company in June. It is also a simpler transaction involving only real estate — U.S. Sugar would retain its mill, citrus processing facilities and other assets — leaving open the possibility of preserving the company’s 1,700 jobs.

“This is a unique opportunity,” said Robert Coker, a senior vice president with U.S. Sugar.

We pay for the land and pay again at publix.
